Shola Amoo’s directorial feature debut, A Moving Image, looks at gentrification in Brixton through a mixture of fiction, documentary and performance art. Following acclaim at its UK premiere at last year’s BFI London Film Festival, A Moving Image opens on 28th April exclusively at The Ritzy in Brixton, before playing wider on 5th May.
Tanya Fear (Kick-Ass 2) stars as Nina, a young artist, who returns to her community after a long absence, and soon questions whether she is part of the problem of gentrification that she witnesses around her.
As she struggles with her own complicity, she embarks on a mission to create a piece of art that can bring her community together. The film follows her journey, and fact and fiction merge as the lives of real Brixton residents affected by gentrification are brought into focus.
